Who we are and what we do

About us

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust provides hospital-based services from three main sites - the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch, Kidderminster Hospital and Treatment Centre, and Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Worcester.

We provide a wide range of services to a population of 580,000 people in Worcestershire as well as caring for patients from surrounding counties and further afield.

Last year, we provided care to more than 231,448 different patients – that is 40% of the Worcestershire population that received care at one of our hospitals in the last year.

Every day, we saw 634 different patients and 2618 patients in total.

These included:

  • 156,160 A&E attendances
  • 152,712 Inpatients
  • 641,486 Outpatients
  • 5,261 births

We employ nearly 6,000 people and around 800 local people volunteer with us helping to deliver care. We have an annual turnover of over £400 million

Our catchment population extends beyond Worcestershire itself, as patients are also attracted from neighbouring areas including South Birmingham, Warwickshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and South Staffordshire. This results in a catchment population which varies between 420,000 and 800,000 depending on the service.

4ward is our Trustwide culture change programme which is helping us build a more positive, supportive workplace for the benefit of our patients and colleagues. At its heart are our four 4ward Behaviours.
